81 – One Week and One Day To Go

Vacation is getting ever closer……
……..and I’m just getting impatient for it.

I’m so ready to just relax on the beach…
…with my husband
…and a good book.


77 – Countdown to Vacation

We’ll be here in just 2 weeks and 3 days.  Cannot wait!

Vacation can’t come soon enough.

Don and I are both very excited that, not only is his immediate family going, but all of his dad’s side of the family will be there.  This is the first time they’ve had an entire family vacation in over 10 years.  We’re so excited to spend the week with everyone and just enjoy the sunshine and beach.

75 – Update Fail

Work has been crazy busy.

I’m only a couple chapters into my re-read of The Lord of the Rings even though I started reading it close to two weeks ago.

Don and I have only just finished catching up on the entire series of Mad Men.

I think those are valid reasons for why I haven’t really written anything recently.  Not much has been going on.  At least nothing that I can think of to write about.

So that’s that.

68 – blah

My lack of posts is only because work has been so consuming.  There’s been so much to do and so much going on.  Not a free minute.  And when I get home, I’m tired and don’t feel like doing much.

But…hopefully…I should have a book review up tomorrow for Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver.  I’m about 80 pages from finishing it.  And I’m loving it.

54 – Eeeek!!

Yes, it’s true.  I’m a Hanson fan.  And I have been since the mid-90s when “Mmmbop” came out.  ::swoon::  Seriously.  LOVE this band.

They’ve gone from this…

To this…

I know, right?!

But seriously, they’re my favorite band and have been for many years.

I am FINALLY getting to see them in concert tonight for the first time in 5 years.  They came to the ‘burgh in 2008…the same day I was moving back to the ‘burgh.  I was pulling into my new apartment complex as their show was starting.  Not cool.  Then they came to the ‘burgh in 2010…the same day as my wedding rehearsal.  Again, I had to miss it.  Then they came in October 2011, and they postponed because Taylor and Zac were pretty sick.  So, tonight is the night!  Can’t wait!

For your viewing pleasure……You can’t say they don’t know how to have fun.

52 – Workout…ugh

Since Don is away this weekend camping (Yes, in the frigid cold and snow.  He was bummed last year when he went that it didn’t snow.), I had to clear off our driveway.  Needless to say, I didn’t do Jillian’s workout today.  Though, spending an hour and a half shoveling the 4-5 inches of snow shown below, I think I deserved it.

Yeah…our driveway has more square footage than our house.

And as you can see, it’s already getting snowed on…again.  (Don’t mind the nasty railings on our porch.  We’re getting new ones in the Spring!)

I’ve got to get my shower and go get groceries before the driveway gets too bad again.


43 – An Update…

So…things are going well.  I’m moving steadily on my 30-ish Before 30 goals.  I’m starting a new workout regiment tomorrow.  Don and I are doing very well and are very happy.  I’ve been reading some fantastic books.  Life is good.

I’m very excited to start my new workout regiment tomorrow.  I’m going to give Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred a try.  It has gotten great reviews and I’m hoping I’ll be able to add to those reviews come the end of February.

Our beach vacation with the family is only 3 months and 12 days away!  I’ve got to get my body back in shape!  Woohoo!   Can’t wait!

Not much else is going on.  Life has been treating us very well.  God has been so good to us.  Hopefully January will be a good preview of what all of 2012 will be like for us.
